Daniel, Thank you VERY, VERY much for sending this to me. This is the most pithily-clear, brilliantly-written, comprehensive article on Religion as The Root Cause of the Crap -- & more Crap to Come -- if the Originators of it have their way! -- which we MUST NOT -- WE CANNOT LET HAPPEN. This Planet & its Precious People and Inherent Goodness & Beauty is too Awesome to let religious fanatics destroy it--& Civilization Itself!
This article echoes most resoundingly the Zeitgeist Movment presentation which ended with a quote from a famous person: "THE SHIT'S GOTTA GO!" at the OFH mtg. last Sunday. (Posting this email to that mtg. site & Mailing List as well.) I just finished reading the entire article, even between leg cramps and all--it was RIVETING! It "Rang True" to me in EVERY way from my own evangelical, fundamentalist, protestant brainwashing--(Parts of me are Still "In Recovery")--background. The author is NOT exaggerating Anything--from what I know to be experientially true--from my childhood-to-adulthood indoctrination by the Seventh-day Adventist version of "fossilized religions" -- & the confirmation of those truths in my adult life --experientially, academically & observationally since.
